I also bought that charger ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08BYB4H1C?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details ) (but from a different brand: Patona).
I was already annoyed, when I opened the box of my new X-T5 and then no charger inside. Fuji sells that original charger for extra $$$, but then the power adapter is missing. Why? I am buying a camera, not a phone or a tablet or whatsoever. So please give me the charger.
Then I opted for the above one, together with 2 batteries. Same price than the Fuji charger alone without 2 "free batteries". No problems at all. And what's cool, that charger is "slow", 4 to 5 hours for a complete charge. So it does not fry the batteries.
Yes, disappointing, right.
I've sort of given up - I'll never buy Fuji again. I tried interjecting on their social media ads, living comments imploring them to fix what they deliberately changed/broke. But not a word in response.
Something changed at Fuji and it does not benefit the user.
-on to other worries.
How do I lock X-E1 exposure in video mode? It's stuck on auto, and the only thing it can be adjusting is ISO, as the shutter is locked at 24fps, and I'm using a vintage Nikon lens - so manual f-stop. I know its not designed to shoot video, but I find it hard to believe a camera of this quality that offers video at full HD 24fps, would not allow an exposure lock function. Without exposure control, the video mode is useless.
I want to share some thoughts with you in order to help me choose the right camera.
I sold almost my photographic equipment and I kept only 2 cameras.
Ricoh GRII and Fujifilm XT5 and some lenses ( 10-24/4 & 35/2 & 56/1,2 & 16-80/4)
My project for the next years is to visit cities and countries around the world and taking street photography and some landscape photography and publish some books with these photos.
Street photography is 80% of my photos now. The rest is landscape photography.
Here some key points
I want to take only one camera and one lens. No big cameras, no lenses, no bags anymore. I like to be more minimalist in my philosophy to take photos and in my life generally.
I shot 95% Jpeg not RAW. I know the benefits of RAW in editing, dynamic range etc but all cameras has anymore very good jpeg. And it’s ok for me. If a camera has RAW and JPEG I choose this option and keep RAW for the future when I print the books. Then I will edit my final photos for the printing. I
I like 28mm not 35mm
I sold my Canon and Fujis and I have 8.000$ in stock. For my new camera and for my first trips.
I read many reviews and I decided to buy one of these 2 cameras for my basic camera.
Fuji X100 VI with 28mm lens
Would you like please to send me your opinion about this dilemma? Which you would prefer Leica Q3 or Fuji X100VI and why?
